hmmm. I combine to make the aspect the thaumanomicon tells me to, then spend my time scanning things in the world. I find that _very_ satisfying when I find *the* item that unlocks the next part of the chain.
I quite enjoy the Doodle God feel that aspect combining has, and would go so far as to say that I probably find it equally as satisfying when I discover a new aspect by combining others. Of course, a lot of the 'mystery' surrounding that has tapered off as I do it more and more, though I often find myself forgetting a large portion of the combinations.
